Ellsworth XC 26 Wheelset

DESCRIPTION

The optimal wheels for your Truth, Epiphany or other XC ride, Ellsworth's XC wheels feature 24 spokes with special 2 cross lacing and Ellsworth's patented Quad Butted Spokes. Our spoke design minimizes windup from breaking and pedaling with the least amount of spoke mass. Compatible with the standard QR and the new 15mm QR, these are the only wheels you'll need for XC riding or racing. The XC rims are Ellsworth's proprietary, 29mm wide, tapered wall rim that is extruded from xxx9 Aluminum. Ellsworth's 29mm rim weighs the same as other manufacturer's 23mm wide rims but gives you the extra strength, durability and control of a wider rim. The XC rim's higher width to weight ratio also provides a larger contact patch between your tire and the ground for the same amount of weight. And since xxx9 Taper wall aluminum weighs less than rubber, you can save additional rolling weight by running a narrower tire while still getting the traction and control of a wider, heavier tire.
